Good.

The rest of the forum will be fighting for coveted title of "Last post of the year" :eyes

I will be going to deepest, darkest, greenest Bucks, quaffing copious amounts of Cristal and Margaux, chunks of fresh foie gras, succulent lobster, baskets of fresh oysters and getting more than friendly with the best of breed of Buckinghamshire's finest filly.

Then I'll wake up in 2012 with a crusty sock puppet nestled tightly on the todger, a sense of embarrassment, déjà vu all over again and another reality check.

Bastards...

Some of my ancestors came from there. If you get a chance, can you check out a few gravestones for me?

The Harrying of the North (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Harrying_of_the_North) ended at the River Ribble, and my forbears took full advantage of that.

Finish work sometime tomorrow afternoon and drive home. Pack my bags for Friday and get a train to Hamburg where I shall be partying until Tuesday. Sadly Frau D. (and another couple) are coming with me so I can't do any really naughty stuff although there is a road in Hamburg where women aren't allowed so I could just 'accidentally' get lost...

Ahh, Rivvy! You going up to the Pike? Tis said you can see five Kingdoms from up there on a (rare) clear day;

England
Wales
Scotland
Ireland
Isle of Man

Personally I think it's bollocks, you're lucky if you can see Horwich...

Come to think of it there's no way to see Ireland or Scotland either, surely too far. The things you get told as kids and just believe, like my dad told me the long planted traffic islands around Bolton Town Hall are giant's graves and spaghetti is made of worms.

And it's NOT the Reperbahn, it's some street round the back. Reperbahn is boring, lines of lap dancing clubs and fast food joints....

Hamburg is great tho - try the Fischmarkt at Landungsbrucken on Sunday morning about 7:00am, still a party going on from the night before, beer still flowing, feels very wrong!

Quiet one this year.

Still plenty of good food and wine though.

Might check out a local jazz bar where bands start at midnight.

Yep, I know that, been there, not done it! Last time I was in Hamburg I ended up at a live sex show on the Reeperbahn with 3 women (all techie management from Telekom) and got kicked out of the show for laughing too much and refusing to pay 35 smackers for a beer. Ended up in an old boys pub (the best) drinking with Hamburgers, great night. Will probably go to Parlament (great eaterie under the Rathaus) and Old Commercial. Will also visit Spicys (spice museum) and Beatlemania (big museum dedicated to the Rolling Stones.)

We went to Das Parlament - was ok but didn't rate it that highly really, possibly my German buddy over-egged it.

The Mo-grill sausage stand on Monckebergstrasse, hmmmm!

I look forwards to rolling out my new DayTrade v2.0 component featuring the MaximizeProfit() method to increase my income exponentially. The financial markets won't know what has hit them!

Look on with envy, cretins! :tongue

If I didn't know better I'd guess this was a sockie. :eyes

Inocrrect. I did some serious Lisp porgramming this Christmas and this is the result.

I haven't done New Year since the whole millennium debacle. Paid a fortune to get into a pub in Oxford, which was mostly empty for the night because most people had more sense.:mad:

I'll probably stay in by myself with a bottle of wine, find some film to watch, and make a point of going to bed at 11:55pm.

Paying and entrance fee to get into a pub is in breach of its licence. A public house is open to the public; it is not a club.

I dont think thats where the Public word comes from!

Is a public house not so named because it is free to sell any beer it chooses and is not restricted by a particular brewery?

No, that is called a "Free House"
